ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:
The Vaudevillian exhibit, which will be on view at Gallery 38 in West Adams February 27th through March 13th, is the beginning of a story about a traveling Vaudeville show where the characters are a mesh of fantastic animals, humans and animal human-morphs. Mixing timelines between the Roaring 20s and Modern times, these characters are from Crawford’s imaginary world, where animals and humans are equal in their quest to create lasting artistic experiences while making a world that is more beautiful and full of laughter. This show, at first glance, is light and whimsical, although if you look closer, viewers will find signs of dark under tones in the entertainment business.
